When it's time to have a Red Sox Championship parade, it only makes sense to have the Dropkick Murphys kicking off the celebration.
That's exactly what the band will be doing Wednesday morning as the duck boats roll through Boston, according to Ken Casey, one of the group's lead singers and their bass guitarist.
Casey posted a photoshopped picture of himself in a Red Sox uniform Tuesday, looking like Red Sox manager Alex Cora was coming in for a hug.
Coach Cora said “we need this parade to be special... it’s for the greatest team in Red Sox history ...we need a band to lead if off with a bang .!!!” We said “give us the ball coach ...put us on duck boat number ONE we wanna set the tone for the best parade in Boston history.” AC tossed us the ball and said “Duck One is all yours boys give em hell !!!” See you Wendsday everybody we’ll be leading the way !!! #damagedone #2018worldserieschamps #mayorwalshthrowsthebestparty #titletownusa
In the caption, Casey said, "Coach Cora said 'we need this parade to be special...it's for the greatest team in Red Sox history...we need a band to lead it off with a bang!!!'
Casey and the Dropkick Murphys appear to be ready to go for the celebration, as Casey said, "give us the ball coach...put us on duck boat number ONE we wanna set the tone for the best parade in Boston history."
It looks like the band will get things started when the parade kicks off at 11 a.m. Wednesday morning, with Casey saying they'll be "leading the way."
The band also took part in the 2007 and 2013 Red Sox championship parades, with the 2007 rendition notable for Jonathan Papelbon's infamous Irish jig during the parade and throughout the team's postseason run.
